I need advice on my Java application...

Hi everyone...I'm working on a project and I need some advice.

My project is going to be an online (client/server) appointment scheduling system. I'm writing it in Java and running a MySQL database underneath it. I'm using Connector J, which is a JDBC driver, to connect my Java application to the MySQL database.

Here's where I need advice. I want my Java application to send meeting request notifications and confirmations to meeting attendees through email. How do I go about in doing that? Is there some kind of special email API out there that would allow me to do that? If so, please direct me to a good source.

Another question...Can my application act as a client for 2 or more different servers at the same time? EX: Be connected to the MySQL database and act as a Chat Client at the same time? If so, please direct me to a good example source.

Thanks...I'm still a beginner in programming and I appreciate all of your help and advice :)

    First of all, this topic needs to be in the "Java programming" forum.

    For the first question, you need the Java Mail API. If you read that documentation you'll be able to send those messages to the people using your server.

    For the second question, ofcourse that's possible, you only need to use two sockets, one for the mysql server and one for the chat server.

    If you want a tutorial about building a java chatserver, i can send you a pdf file. But I need your email address to send it to you.

    Hope I helped you enouph. Good luck.
